COLON HYDROTHERAPY BENEFITS
COLON HYDROTHERAPY FOR CONSTIPATION
The colon, the last portion of the digestive system, collects food wastes and absorbs liquid from the stool before it is evacuated. If this process moves sluggishly, more liquid than desirable may be removed, and the fecal matter can become dry, hard, and densely packed. When fecal matter remains in the colon for an extended amount of time, it will ferment, causing bloating and gas as well as a feeling of general discomfort. Colon hydrotherapy, by washing away the hardened fecal matter, brings relief right away from those uncomfortable symptoms. Colon hydrotherapy is not painful, and you can be assured that it is not embarrassing or undignified; it is more appropriately thought of as a healthy practice used to detoxify the body.
What Causes Constipation?
Constipation is a common digestive problem characterized by infrequent or difficult bowel movements. Constipation occurs when the colon absorbs too much water from the food moving through it while it is forming waste products, or stool. It also occurs when slow muscle contractions in the colon result in the stool becoming solid and hard to eliminate. Constipation may be caused by several factors among which are low-fiber diets, inactivity, pregnancy, laxative abuse, dehydration, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Why Should I Consider Colon Hydrotherapy to Relieve Constipation?
Gentle and natural, colon hydrotherapy introduces purified water into the colon to cleanse it and relieve discomfort. Rather than involving only the rectum, as an enema does, colon hydrotherapy can cleanse and soothe the entire colon. It relieves constipation without subjecting the body to chemical laxatives by flushing away impacted food wastes with sterilized, body-temperature water. Some colon hydrotherapists may enhance the cleansing action of the fluid by gently massaging the patient’s abdomen during the procedure. Some people may opt to use an herbal preparation prior to their colon cleansing session. Colon hydrotherapy, when practiced by a licensed practitioner, is safe, effective, and painless. The therapist may offer to provide relaxing music or even reading material during the procedure.
What Benefits Can I Expect from a Colon Hydrotherapy Session?
Relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of constipation is just one of the benefits that patients report after colon hydrotherapy. Since today’s diet inevitably includes many toxins, those toxins tend to accumulate in the colon, and they also are flushed away with colon hydrotherapy. Most people comment immediately after the procedure that they feel lighter, and that that they have a feeling of energy and well-being. In addition, there are other benefits which you can’t see or feel, but which improve the way the body processes food wastes. For instance, beneficial bacteria, which produce vitamin K and part of the B complex, grow and function properly when they are not hampered by the debris of constipation. In addition, the muscles that move food waste through the colon are better able to perform their job when the colon is cleansed. Some patients also report that colon hydrotherapy has aided them in weight-loss programs.
Colon Hydrotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic condition causing abdominal pain, cramping, constipation, and/or diarrhea.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reports that as many as twenty percent of Americans – approximately fifty-four million people – struggle with irritable bowel syndrome1.
Typically, IBS presents itself in late adolescence or early adulthood, and seldom after the age of fifty. Nearly twice as many women suffer with IBS as men – sixty to sixty-five percent compared to thirty-five to forty percent2 – but this figure may be reflective of the fact that women are more inclined to report health problems than men
Irritable Bowel Syndrome – Difficult to Diagnose
IBS is a functional gastrointestinal disorder, meaning it is characterized by chronic abdominal complaints without a structural or known biochemical cause to explain the symptoms. As such, IBS does not show up on x-rays, nor does any visible inflammation or damage to the tissue occur.
While IBS is an extremely common digestive disorder, it is one of the most difficult to diagnose and treat because the symptoms are often inconsistent, and it is a problem of both the bowel and the brain. IBS is a lack, or excess, of communication between your brain and your gut – otherwise known as brain-gut interaction.
IBS is characterized by abdominal pain, cramping, or discomfort; bloating and flatulence; constipation or diarrhea; the presence of mucus in stool; the feeling of having had an incomplete bowel movement; heartburn; and nausea.
Other symptoms – such as a change in the frequency of bowel movements or their appearance, feelings of uncontrollable urgency to have a bowel movement, inability to, or difficulty, passing stool – may be present.
Weight loss, fever, bleeding, and persistent severe pain are not symptoms of IBS, but may indicate other problems such as inflammation.
One of the main reasons IBS is so common is a direct result of the toxins backed up in our systems – toxins that poison our immune systems. We eat foods that contain ingredients such as polypropylene; this chemical, also found in antifreeze, is used in most of our food packaging. And much of our standard American diet is comprised of processed, junk, and fake foods, which are all full of toxins, chemicals, and additives.
Since more than sixty percent of our immune system is contained within the intestines, dealing with internal toxicity is of vital concern.
Irritable bowel syndrome is an indication that something wrong, and there are likely multiple causes. If you have a food allergy to, say, gluten or dairy, ingesting food containing these products will irritate your gut, and your immune system will turn its attention to dealing with the food it considers to be an irritant rather than focusing on the function of providing you with immunity to illness.
Eventually, the issue will manifest in your joints, or your brain, as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), IBS, or a variety of other health problems; the irritation could take up residence in any part of your body that is capable of having an autoimmune response to overload.
Emotional Well Being
Digestive problems have long been associated with distress. We’re all human, but each of us responds differently to the emotional challenges of life’s trials.
Many of us have learned to cope with troubles by soldiering bravely on. Eventually, however, if left unchecked, stress will get the better of us, and our unresolved emotional baggage may turn up as a physical ailment such as IBS. For many people, irritable bowel syndrome is an emotional response to the challenges of daily living.
Flushing Out Internal Toxins and Restoring Healthy Flora – IBS, Colon Cleansing, and Probiotics
The place to begin is with a detoxification of your entire body, starting with your colon. Get those bowels moving two or three times a day! Cleansings can also help to relieve abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating and flatulence, constipation, and heartburn.
Regular colon cleanses can help tone the colon – a necessity in maintaining optimumtransit times, avoiding constipation, and alleviating the discomfort and irritation associated with IBS.
Colonic irrigation and herbal cleansing can help to remove impacted waste; make passing stool easier; and flush out excess mucus, parasites, and toxins that have built up in your colon over a lifetime. Removing these impurities can go a long way toward helping your body absorb nutrients, enhancing energy levels, and increasing regularity…all necessary aspects of managing IBS symptoms.
The more support given to the colon, the less likely it is that toxins will accumulate in your immune system. By cleansing your colon, you’ll be helping your body eliminate toxins before they get reabsorbed. Although we do not recommend it, even if you live on potato chips and chocolate bars, you’ll still be better off for having cleansed yourself.
After cleansing your colon, it’s important to restore certain bacteria to stop unhealthy bacteria from inhabiting the area, preventing toxic material from re-infecting your colon. This is particularly true in the case of those with IBS, where there may be excess badbacteria in the small intestine3. Probiotics are the good bacteria your system needs in order to restore its healthy flora.
It’s wise to begin a cleanse with considerably less than the suggested dosage if you’re elderly, and have struggled with constipation for decades. If you have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea-predominant (IBS-D), or are experiencing bleeding, a cleanse should not be your first step, but it ought to be a consideration. Probiotics is a great first step for those with IBS-D.
COLON HYDROTHERAPY FOR GERD "ACID REFLUX"
Acid reflux is painful. Food and acid splash into the esophagus and cause belching, heartburn and, in some severe cases, chest pains. Some individuals have experienced pain so intense they thought they were having a heart attack. If a person experiences acid reflux on a regular basis, the acids will irritate the esophagus, which may advance to scarring, ulceration, swelling or hemorrhaging. What is the risk of acid reflux? Many experts agree, if acid reflux persists, it may lead to esophageal cancer.
If you suffer from acid reflux, you need to take inventory of your life and determine what’s causing or exacerbating the problem. Start off with a review of dietary habits. Foods that contain living enzymes are crucial in eliminating and preventing acid reflux. There are other measures you can take, here is a video describing six of them.
1. Balance Your Hydrochloric Acid Levels
Increasing natural production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is the first step to preventing acid reflux symptoms. Replace cheap table salt with high-quality sea salt. I personally use and recommend Himalayan Crystal Salt because it contains chloride and dozens of trace minerals the body needs.
I also recommend taking a plant derived Betaine HCL supplement before meals. This is extremely effective at preventing acid reflux symptoms.
2. Change your diet
Processed foods and sugars are almost a guaranteed way to exacerbate acid reflux and create a bacterial imbalance in the stomach and intestinal tract. To combat this, eat fresh organic fruits and vegetables. An apple a day keeps big pharma away! Check out my brand new body cleansing diet! Taking a probiotic supplement like Latero-Flora™ will also help balance the bowel with good bacteria.
3. Take a Digestive Enzyme Supplement
Enzymes are found in abundance in raw food but the act of cooking food over 116° Fahrenheit destroys the health promoting enzymes. Only living and raw foods are high in nutrient values and the enzyme levels that are crucial to combat acid reflux. There are many good enzyme supplements available, and the best one that I recommend is VeganZyme™.
4. Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
I recommend taking one tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar mixed in about 4 ounces of purified water before each meal. This will help calm the stomach and supports digestion. This remedy also works for acute episodes of acid reflux and is my favorite, fast-acting home remedy for acid reflux.
5. Take Organic Baking soda
Bicarbonate is a wonder product though some doctors recommend it not be used if you have high blood pressure or if you are on a sodium restricted diet. It’s best to get advice first. Mix a spoonful in a glass of water, stir, and drink before it stops fizzing.
6. Take Organic Aloe Vera Juice
Aloe vera juice is commonly used to calm upset stomach, diarrhea and redness associated with bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis. Aloe vera juice supports digestion and is another great remedy for acid reflux. I recommend drinking 1 ounce of the brand ‘R Pur Aloe’ mixed in 2 ounces of water when acid reflux symptoms begin.
I also suggest a full body cleanse. Start with a colon cleanse, then perform a liver cleanse, then a harmful organism cleanse, followed by a chemical and toxic metal cleanse.
Eliminating the discomfort from acid reflux can be done without expensive over-the-counter medications. There are many natural remedies readily available. Feel better naturally, your body will thank you!

COLON HYDROTHERAPY FOR CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME "SLUGGISHNESS"
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complex illness that afflicts between 1 and 4 million Americans. The condition is extremely debilitating and there is no cure, therefore patients can only seek to alleviate their symptoms.
In this quest, some have turned to alternative medicine therapies, including colon hydrotherapy, colonic irrigation, or high colonic. Although there is little scientific evidence to suggest that this is an effective treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome, anecdotal evidence by its proponents suggests that it may be a viable approach for some patients.
Why Use Colon Hydrotherapy for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Chronic fatigue syndrome patients who have not had success with traditional medical treatments, or who are looking for a natural, alternative approach to medications and other medical treatment may want to try colon hydrotherapy.
Ordinarily, colon hydrotherapy is recommended for patients suffering from digestive problems such as gas, bloating, cramps, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Colonic irrigation can help alleviate these problems by flushing toxins from the lower gastrointestinal tract, thereby improving the overall function of the bowel. A properly functioning bowel can help the body better absorb nutrients from food and prevent vitamin deficiencies.
A person with chronic fatigue syndrome may suffer from vitamin deficiencies, so enabling the body to better absorb nutrients might alleviate some of the symptoms of CFS. Proponents of colon hydrotherapy also note that there are many mental benefits from the process. By cleansing the body of wastes, alternative practitioners say, one also cleanses the mind. Since chronic fatigue syndrome is a stressful condition that can sometimes lead to depression, the reported mental benefit from colon hydrotherapy is an advantage of the therapy.
Several sessions of colon hydrotherapy may be required before a patient with chronic fatigue syndrome experiences an improvement in symptoms. This is because material in the colon builds up over time.
What Causes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Unfortunately, even after decades of researching, the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome—also known as chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome, myalgic encephalomyelitis and post viral fatigue syndrome—is unknown. Current theories suggest that a virus may be responsible.
Chronic fatigue syndrome is difficult to diagnose, because its main symptom—a debilitating level of fatigue that does not improve with bed rest—is a factor in other illnesses, and no specific diagnostic test is available. Generally, a patient must have both chronic fatigue and a number of other serious symptoms before being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome.
Colon Cleansing – The Secret to Weight Loss and Wellness
Many Americans are constantly overeating and not releasing enough waste. If a person’s colon does not release two full bowel movements each day, it is very possible they may have a toxic colon.
Focusing on a Healthy Colon
The approach to colon cleansing is one that does not specifically target weight loss, but more for regularity and overall wellness. However, almost every individual receiving a colonic irrigation may lose at least 5 to 7 pounds after each colonic session. The trick is to not focus on ‘weight loss,’ but on healthy eating and exercise during and after a colon hydrotherapy session.
Immediately following a session, there is a lighter feeling – perhaps because the garbage bin has been dumped completely. Therapists reveal the secret to weight loss is balanced enzymes in the diet – meaning a full diet of raw vegetables, especially greens. Enzymes found in raw veggies help to break down proteins and ultimately eliminate toxins from the body. While partaking in a colon cleanse, it is best for the individual to eat a diet rich in uncooked greens, preferably juiced.
The rainbow diet, as it has been referred to, is one that not only results in dramatic weight loss, but also keeps the body functioning properly – like after changing the oil in a car or scrubbing the bathroom tub after years of grim and mildew. Cilantro is a fabulous herb that can aid in the removal of heavy metal toxins.
Healthy Food Combinations
The trick to maintain a healthy digestive system is to properly combine foods during each meal or food intake. The following is a brief description of well-balanced food combinations:
A helpful tip is to eat fruit alone and rather than in between meals while food is digesting. It’s best to eat fruit prior to meals, and after a meal, wait at least 3 hours before eating more fruit.
Try avoiding cold foods, even liquids, completely; they inhibit digestion.
Try not to combine proteins (like met, milk, nuts, eggs, and seeds) with carbohydrates (like beans, bread, grains and cereals). This produces a conflicting response to the digestive track and will result in gas and discomfort.
The best combination is to eat fats and oils (like avocado and nut oils) with non-starchy vegetables (like chard, collard greens, green beans, lettuce, parsley, sprouts, kale, etc.).
Another great combination is fats and oils with either proteins or carbohydrates.
A good combination is to eat proteins with non-starchy vegetables.
A good combination is to eat carbohydrates with non-starchy vegetables.
Proteins, carbohydrates and fruit should try not to be eaten together. When carbohydrates are eaten with fruit/sugars, they will both ferment and cause digestive problems.
Try not to eat dairy products; if you must, eat them with a salad. Dairy is highly mucous forming and will result in fermentation and gas.
Try not to eat cooked tomatoes; if you must have cooked tomato sauce follow it by a large green salad to balance the alkalinity.
Try not to eat cooked spinach, which loses all of its nutritional value and forms acid crystals in the kidneys. Like many greens, it’s best to eat spinach raw.
In addition, make sure your diet is free from yeast, refined sugars, and hydrogenated oils. By eliminating these three foods from your diet you will immediately notice weight loss. A colonic helps to restore the digestive system back to normal, which also reduces food cravings.
Jump Starting Weight Loss
In modern medicine, a colon hydrotherapy session is considered to be the natural way to jump-start weight loss in the body. However, nutritionist Bernard Jensen says to maintain weight loss after a colonic must be combined with proper exercise and a diet rich in green vegetables.
By adding colon hydrotherapy to your life, you will ultimately benefit from a healthy lifestyle.
Colon Hydrotherapy for Clarity, Balance, and Peace: A life changing experience
Colon irrigation, or colon hydrotherapy, is considered a holistic approach to eliminating toxins and waste from the body. However, the method of colon cleansing does not only benefit the internal body, but also helps to balance the mind and spirit.
Spiritual Benefits of Colon Cleansing
For every moment in time there is an ending; a constant shift that changes breath by breath. In order to find grounding, we must live in the “now.” The present time immediately becomes the past and the future immediately becomes the present. If we cannot ground ourselves in the “now” we will never experience true peace.
In order to rise above a situation, we must remove the obstacles that stand in our way. Just as a man climbs up a mountain, he passes many obstacles along the way; however, he continues his upward journey until he reaches a plateau or place of salvation. We must therefore remove any impurities that prohibit us from reaching our true state of peace, achieving freedom from suffering.
Yoga to Enhance Our Cleansing and Balance
Practicing yoga not only aids in toning the physical body by focusing on muscle flexibility and strengthening but also works on a more spiritual level by promoting spinal health. Yoga also removes impurities or veils (Vikshepa in Sanskrit) from the mind, causing the body, mind and spirit (our three bodies) to act in sync with one another for optimum health and wellbeing.
In addition, must work on cleansing our inner bodies, not only by eating well, but also by following methods of internal cleansing and detoxification. Cleansing is a simple way to aid ongoing digestive problems, relieve stress, and promote balance.
If you practice yoga you may already be aware of how the physical body reacts to foods, chemicals, toxins, and so forth. Some humans may constantly load themselves with preservatives and animal proteins, highly saturated fats and chemical additives; some may eat until they feel totally full. Both of these sceneries are contributing to weaken the immune system and create illnesses and dis-ease. We may eventually become ill, or develop chronic pains, because we are not releasing these toxins in which we place in our bodies…willingly. Cleansing the internal body is a safe way to remove these toxins.
We feed our bodies and then we rest, however the process is not over. Our bodies immediately begin to digest the foods until the body reaches a state of release; in which at that time the body removes waste and toxins. If you do not experience at least one bowel movement per meal, you may feel irritated and cramped. It’s all a simple process that can be eliminated by internal cleansing.
Cleansing treatments provide a refreshing transformation that purifies the inner body while eliminating toxins and removing impurities. If you practice yoga, meditate, or practice mindful eating, you’ll understand how cleansing our internal body can greatly affect our mood, attitude, and wellbeing.
Practicing in yoga is one of the most enlightening ways to promote balance and reduce stress. The body, mind, and spirit immediately form a union, which results in better sleep, a balancing of moods/attitude towards life, higher realization for what is truly important, as well as the bi-products of a toned, stronger, healthier physical body.
A Personal Story on the Benefits of Colon Cleansing
A female in Miami Beach, Florida, shares her story to help others in their pursuit of internal cleansing and wellbeing.
“I was trying to regulate my bowel movements on a daily basis, suffering from moderate to severe constipation. I was diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), and told by several medical physicians to take stool softeners on a daily basis. This method proved costly and ineffective. I needed an alternative.
After undergoing a juice fast for three days, I decided I needed to begin eliminating toxins. It was more of an intuitional realization that happened during the fast. After feeling a shift in consciousness, I looked up cleansing on the Internet, miraculously, found a local woman who was a licensed colon hydrotherapist who helped my powerful shift by detoxification.
Honestly, after my first colon cleanse, I saw dramatic changes. My skin was clearer; my stomach was free from gas and pain, and I could practice yoga without the feeling of something holding me back. Ultimately, I was able to regulate my digestive system and produce three to four bowel movements per day while only eating two meals, rich in raw greens.
I was also able to stop taking my prescription drugs. It was something that just happened so suddenly following the first session. I knew it was time – after 6 years of being medicated for anxiety and depression – that I needed to take action. My body began rejecting the drugs, which made the process of eliminating the medication rather simple. I had no side effects or adverse reactions; I felt amazing!”
It has now been two months with four colon irrigation sessions; two per month work well for me. I usually follow a raw juice fast with ancient grains, like quinoa and millet, immediately before, during, and after the session which aids in the elimination process.
Having a colon hydrotherapy session is like taking a bath. It cleans out the internal system so you can function with more clarity and balance. Even if you don’t practice yoga, colon cleanse are an amazing tool to progress spiritually on a more subtle level. You have nothing to lose! It has definitely changed my life.”
All it takes is awareness.

COLON HYDROTHERAPY FOR
Colon hydrotherapy for allergies is a procedure that removes toxins from the bowels and stimulates the body’s immune system to fight off allergies in a natural way. Conventional medicine uses antihistamines and steroids to relieve the symptoms of allergies, but does nothing to remove the underlying cause of the body’s allergic reactions. Since allergies are affected by a faulty immune system, boosting the immune response is one approach that can be used to prevent allergic reactions. Colon hydrotherapy cleans the body’s internal system, boosts the immune system, removes toxins, and brings the body into balance.
How Does Colon Hydrotherapy Help Allergies?
Toxins from nutrient-deficient fast food and junk food, environmental pollution and petrochemicals, pharmaceutical intake, and perfumed personal care products collect in our body. Add to that a lethargic lifestyle, lack of exercise, and increased stress from a fast-paced world, and our bodily functions slow down and perform poorly.
When this happens to our digestive system, our colon backs up. Our intestines retain that toxic sludge and cannot process nutrients. This is detrimental to the healthy balance in our bodies and leads to a number of ailments, such as allergies, skin problems such as acne, constipation, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Why Use Colon Hydrotherapy for Allergies?
Allergies, especially in children, are on the rise. Some say as many as a fifth or even a third of the population have allergies. Also rising are the rates of constipation, bowel cancer, and colon cancer. Improper bowel activity is a root cause for these maladies.
For a healthy adult, food should spend no longer than 24 hours in the body before passing gently through the system. For an overweight or lethargic person, or one who indulges in non-nutritious food, that time can be an unhealthy 60 hours. Food and toxins remain in the body longer, decaying, fermenting, and putrefying, thus allowing more time for toxins to be absorbed by the body. Some reports say that pockets in the intestines can trap food and toxins for decades. This decaying material injures the walls of the intestines and damages nerves, glands, tissues, and cells.
The purpose of the intestinal system is to absorb nutrients from food and distribute them through the blood supply to the rest of the body. But when the intestines are clogged and the blood is tainted by toxins, the body suffers. The immune system is threatened and the body becomes susceptible to food allergies and food sensitivies. The aim is to remove the cause of the blockage, cleanse the colon of all impedance, and restore the immune system so the body can heal itself. Colon hydrotherapy eliminates toxins, rebuilds and strengthens the intestines, and balances the body’s restorative systems.
The Relationship between the Colon and Allergies
When the body succumbs to the toxic effects of allergens, it wants to expel the toxins by producing body fluids, such as through sneezes, watery eyes and noses, urine, and feces. The colon plays a role in this expulsion. But if it is clogged and impacted and not fully functional, allergy symptoms can intensify and affect the rest of body.
Allergies themselves can cause the colon to be impeded. Sometimes a food allergic reaction will cause food to accumulate in the colon and result in constipation. The food is trapped and ferments, releasing toxins that the colon absorbs into the bloodstream. The allergic reaction is exacerbated and the body becomes woefully imbalanced.
COLON HYDROTHERAPY FOR CANCER
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as Colon Irrigation, is a natural way to aid health and feel clean and balanced. Colon therapy has been used for centuries by European, Middle Eastern, and Far Eastern people for personal purification, health, and religious pursuits. Today, it is being used in alternative and naturopathic therapies for cancer treatment, candida and constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and to ease labor and childbirth.
Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy for Cancer
Colon Hydrotherapy is especially useful in treating cancer patients. Colon Hydrotherapy improve circulatory functions, stimulate the immune system, remove toxic waste, stimulate appetite, eliminate headaches, and boost energy.
When we eat a nutritionally deficient diet, the unused waste stagnates in the colon and the body absorbs these toxins. The organs in the body responsible for purification, such as the liver, kidneys, lungs, and skin, work overtime trying to purge the waste. This can result in a variety of illnesses.
Removing carcinogenic toxins from the body and boosting the immune system are paramount during illness, especially cancer. With cancer, large tumors can break and cause necrotic areas, formed of dead tissue. Since the body expels these toxic byproducts through the colon, it’s vital to keep the colon flushed out with a cleansing colon hydrotherapy session.
If a patient is weakened from the disease, frequent colonics help relieve the colon’s toxic burden during the patient’s healing process. But remember, colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, nor should it be the only treatment for cancer. With a disease as serious as cancer, concurrent care under a physician is advisable.
Why Use Colon Hydrotherapy for Cancer?
The American diet—full of processed foods, saturated fats, salt, bleached bread, additives, and artificial colors—leaves the colon clogged and stressed. Undigested food in the colon can ferment and putrefy, encouraging bacteria and toxins. Add to that a habitual lack of exercise and not drinking enough water and the result is constipation or diarrhea.
Colon Hydrotherapy releases congestion in the bowel, encourages beneficial intestinal flora, and detoxifies the body to improve overall health. After a colon hydrotherapy session, people report feeling lighter in body and spirit, clean, clear headed, healthy, and even euphoric. Other benefits of colon hydrotherapy include less headaches, better mental clarity, better weight management, and relief from abdominal cramps, rheumatoid arthritis, and allergies.
The colon hydrotherapy procedure involves insertion of a disposable speculum connected to a hose into the rectum and the gentle infusion of purified water into the rectum, to flush out the intestinal tract and upper bowel. The colon is flushed repeatedly to gently loosen fecal matter and flush away toxins.
Colon Hydrotherapy for Cancer Prevention
Colon Hydrotherapy may also be used as a preventative measure for cancers of the colon, liver, and digestive system, as well as for general health. When we normally move our bowels, we do not entirely empty the colon and material is left behind. A colon hydrotherapy flushes away what is left over, cleaning the body of waste and toxins that can build up and promote the growth of cancer cells.
Along with a healthy diet and exercise program, regular colon hydrotherapy sessions are part of a proactive plan to ward off disease and promote well-being. A generally healthy person can undergo a colon hydrotherapy session once every few months to maintain good health.
Choosing Colon Hydrotherapy Over Enemas
To achieve the most benefit, choose Colon Hydrotherapy over a simple enema. An enema is only able to cleanse the lower bowel, while a Colonic has the potential to cleanse the entire large intestines. This treatment may possible improve the health of liver cancer patients.
Colon Hydrotherapy and Fasting
In some colon hydrotherapy treatments, before a Colon Hydrotherapy Session is performed the patient fasts with no food and only liquids, such as water, fruit juice, and vegetable broth. The fasting and the Colon Hydrotherapy are part of an overall regimen to cleanse the body and boost the immune system. Fasting assists the body in detoxifying more effectively.
COLON HYDROTHERAPY FOR ACNE
Acne (also called acne vulgaris) is a skin condition caused by changes in the hair follicle and its associated sebaceous gland. Acne is commonly referred to as pimples, spots, or zits. Acne affects more than 85% of teenagers, and frequently continues into adulthood. Colon hydrotherapy is a natural approach to treating acne that does not include medications or harsh chemicals, while helping you to have clearer and more radiant skin.
What Causes Acne?
Acne is caused by an increase in testosterone, a naturally occurring hormone present in both males and females. Testosterone stimulates the skin’s glands to enlarge, produce oil in, and plug the pores. Acne is common in adolescence, pregnancy, menopause, or other times when hormones are in flux.
Acne also is caused when the colon and kidney are not working properly. Our body eliminates waste through sweating, urinating, and bowel movements. When the colon and kidney fail to function, the waste material is attracted to the pores and blocks them, resulting in psoriasis and acne and other skin problems.
How Can Colon Hydrotherapy Help Relieve the Symptoms of Acne?
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, effective outpatient procedure that removes wastes from the large intestine without the use of medications. During a colon hydrotherapy session, a colon hydrotherapist introduces a small amount of filtered and temperature-regulated water into the colon using specially designed equipment manufactured following Food and Drug Administration guidelines for safety and cleanliness. The process is often repeated a few times during a session. When the water enters the colon, the waste is softened and loosened. The softened waste is then eliminated through the intestine’s natural smooth muscle contractions.
In this manner, colon hydrotherapy eliminates excess mucus, bacteria, and parasites. Practitioners and patients of colon hydrotherapy believe that this practice purifies the whole body. The removal of the toxins and poisons found in the colon improves the functioning of the colon and in this way helps the body to alleviate many health problems like fatigue, frequent headaches or stomachaches, and various skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne.
Why Use Colon Hydrotherapy for Acne?
Although acne is a common response to hormonal changes, many affected individuals report decreased self-esteem resulting from the physical appearance of acne and the long-term scarring that can occur when acne is untreated. Many individuals affected by acne will attempt to treat the skin lesions with over-the-counter medications or harsh prescription medications with many side effects. Colon hydrotherapists feel that acne is an indication of a colon that cannot absorb enough Vitamin A due to the presence of toxins, mucus, and other unhealthy products in the colon. Colon hydrotherapy offers an approach to acne that does not include use of medications or invasive medical procedures. Colon hydrotherapy has the added benefit of eliminating from the bowel the repository of accumulated waste material that could overwhelm the body and trigger a variety of systemic illnesses.
Support for the use of colon hydrotherapy includes many books, personal testimonials, and articles such as Morton Walker’s publication on the value of hydrotherapy in the Medical Journalist Report of Innovative Biologics in 2000. After crediting corn flake inventor J. H. Kellogg for popularizing the method around the world, he notes, “Enthusiastic expressions of approval for colon hydrotherapy are undeniable medical endorsements for this significant complementary treatment which removes metabolic waste from a person’s large bowel without applying toxic agents of any kind.”
